If you live in the UK and have been waiting patiently for the BlackBerry Bold 9790, then the wait is finally over. UK's favourite online retailers, Expansys and Clove have them in stock ready for delivery. The Bold 9790, seen as the little sister/brother to the Bold 9900 is available sim free for £359.99 from Expansys and £330 from Clove. This also makes it a little easier on the pocket than the Bold 9900.

UK networks still have the Bold 9790 listed as coming soon with no release stated. However, taking a trip to the O2 UK website, it seems like you can already put an order through for the device, with an immediate delivery. An in-store rep has also stated that the Bold 9790 should be making its way onto the shelves sometime next week. O2 prices it at £349.99 on Pay & Go and free from £27 a month on a 2-year contract. It is also available for pre-order from Phones 4 U with a delivery date for January 30. Phones 4 U offer the Bold 9790 on Vodafone, Orange and O2, with the cheapest offering on O2 for £21.50 a month.

BlackBerry Bold 9790 now available in the UK


I got this yesterday after being denied a contract for the 9780 with carphone warehouse; we went directly through o2 as we already have a contract with them and they no longer offer the 9780 so i got this little gem instead; I love it!

unlike the 9900 (which I hate) it looks so much sleeker, more feminine and so much nicer to hold. It's incredibly easy to text on and the touch is so responsive and overall the phones really snappy... LOVE IT, i'm so glad that carphone warehouse declined us or I wouldn't have known about this!
